Abstract: The automotive industry is going through transformational changes. Many vehicles on the road today are equipped with some levels of ADAS (advanced driver assistance system) and autonomy features. Automotive cameras have been playing an important role in this transformation. In this talk, Dr. Elaine Jin will present an overview of automotive cameras, including the concept of auto grade cameras, levels of autonomy, the automotive use cases and requirements for automotive cameras, and the challenges in designing and developing the automotive cameras.
